Collection Overview

Vision is the mother of all senses. Primates are primarily visual animals. We use vision not just to subserve the proverbial four F’s of life, but for many higher, less mundane pursuits as well. Similarly, vision is also critical for many smart machines that operate in the real world, and for human-machine interfaces. Developing treatments and cures for visual diseases and dysfunction is an important part of biomedical research. For these reasons and more, vision research is at the forefront of  scientific enquiry.

The proposed collection will cover current research methods in all aspects of vision research, broadly defined. This includes but is not limited to methods for studying visual perception and visually guided action in biological systems (molecular/cellular/developmental biology, neurophysiology, neuroimaging, psychophysics, and neuropsychology); multisensory processing, i.e., integration of visual information with other sensory information in biological systems and machines; visual impairment and dysfunction; and visual prostheses.

The overall goal of the Collection will be mainly two-fold: (1) To provide detailed and useful ‘recipes’ for various types of research for the researchers interested in incorporating these methods themselves in their own research, and (2) To provide an overview of modern vision research for more casual readers.

We welcome submissions that focus on (i) well-established methods as practiced in modern vision research, and/or (ii) newer, cutting-edge methods. Authors are welcome to contact one or more of the editors with pre-submission enquiries.
